Forward Vibratory Plate Compactor - AP2000H

Weight - 193 lb., Max Centrifugal Force - 2,475 lb.

MBW's AP2000 is the only vibratory plate compactor specifically designed for asphalt applications. Frequency, amplitude, centrifugal force and mass are all established at optimal levels for maximum productivity on asphalt.

Further, the mechanical construction of the AP2000 is specific to this very demanding application. Stress relieved steel plate housings are crack resistant and provide long wear. Aluminum exciter housing dissipates heat rapidly and custom lubricants preserve bearing and seal integrity. The self cleaning plate prevents dirt build-up.

The GP2000 is a permutation of the AP2000 where frequency, amplitude, centrifugal force and mass are adjusted to provide optimal productivity in the compaction of sands and gravel. The GP2000 is capable of achieving excellent densities on lifts of granular soils up to 12" (31 cm)*.
